Stop Shell’s devastation


Shell’s ships are on the way to drill in the Arctic as you’re reading this.

email_home-depot-label_1506

Tell President Obama it is a MORAL OUTRAGE to give Shell access to offshore oil in the Arctic after what they have done in Nigeria.

In the last year alone, Shell reported 204 spills in the Niger Delta.[1]

And that doesn’t even begin to demonstrate the trauma the oil company has inflicted upon the land and local communities.

If Shell still can’t stop one oil disaster after another in Nigeria, how are they supposed to operate safely in the remote Arctic?

After years of denial, Shell was forced to admit last year in court that they had seriously underestimated two oil spill disasters. The company eventually agreed to a $55 million settlement, significantly more than the $4,000 pocket change they offered the local community at first.[1]

And Shell’s damage hasn’t been confined to the land and water, of course. Gas flares, bright and widespread enough to be seen from space, cause toxic particles to clog people’s lungs.[2] Hundreds of thousands of people have been affected by oil pollution in the air, soil, drinking water, and fisheries.[3]

That’s to say nothing of the assassinations in which Shell was rumored to have participated. While Shell continues to deny any involvement in the hanging of nine anti-oil campaigners, including prominent author Ken Saro-Wiwa, the corporation ended up paying $15.5 million to the activists’ relatives. Shell settled the case one week before trial was to begin in the United States.[4]

Shell has proven that they cannot be trusted. Tell President Obama not to allow Shell to further their devastation in the Arctic!

The stakes are high as Shell’s drillship “Polar Pioneer” left Seattle this week and is now sailing its way to the Arctic. With a government-estimated 75% chance of a major oil spill, we’re on borrowed time.[5]

The Alaska Native communities of the North Slope depend on the bounty of the Arctic Ocean for their livelihoods-and their lives. Would you trust a company with Shell’s Nigerian record with your food source?

The president’s legacy is on the line-an unsolvable oil spill in the Arctic would forever tarnish his environmental credibility. Remind him of the stakes.

Please join this urgent campaign to get President Obama to turn Shell’s drillships around. We have only days left to convince him.

In it together,

Simon Parkes Newsletter April 2015


Welcome to the April edition of my newsletter.  The last 6 weeks have seen some of the greatest activities on this planet perhaps not seen for the last 20 years.

In March it may be remembered that President Putin disappeared for some ten days and I can now reveal what he did.  Apart from meeting Chinese officials and formerly signing the BRICS agreement, the elite American government personnel along with their allies in UK rerouted sensitive encrypted information along the VPN line in the Ukraine.  This information contained, amongst others, reports from the atomic energy commission and Britain’s spy centre known as GCHQ.  This information was fabricated and it was hoped that the Russian secret service would intercept these transmissions.  Encoded in this information was the false report that Britain’s nuclear submarine fleet had targeted their missiles on Russia,  I am left with no other conclusion than to believe that this was an attempt to start a 3rd world war.  Thank god President Putin realised the trick and did not respond militarily, however this was the final act that convinced him to sign the BRICS agreement – for up until now he had not formally signed.  This is why he nationalized the main bank in Russia, because he required a state run bank to trade in the new currency which of course will be gold backed.  Within his inner circle he formed a special committee of between 3 and 5 people who now are very much involved in rolling out of the alternative gold backed system. I understand President Putin had a recent addition to his family and I congratulate him.

On a far more sinister note an arm of the Zionist regime sent a hit squad in an attempt to assassinate President Putin, this was thwarted and at the same time a hit squad was despatched to take out President Obama.  That is why some 10 members of the senate were recently arrested – because this plot also failed.  So now we begin to see why America at its highest levels is fearful of the new gold backed currency.  With China, Switzerland, India, Brazil, potentially Hungary, Iceland and even the United Kingdom wishing to join, America is being isolated economically.

One of the major reasons for the CIA instigating revolution in Ukraine was a pay back to certain Zionist factions.  When America came off the gold standard the Rothschild’s were asked to value America, as of January this year America has exceeded its debt by 22 times which means its 22 times overspent compared to its value.  This has a devastating impact on imported goods where one country who imports does not have gold backed currency while the other country that exports has.  We can all see the cliff edge that America now balances on, it is for this reason that I feel, barring dramatic intervention, the period of July to October could be crucial.

In relation to the CERN device after 2 years of developmental work and non operation the final part of the 26 mile extension was being put into place when damage occurred to the tubing.  This has put back the operation of the device yet again and we await with interest to see the development.  Many people are making predictions about the Planet X, I certainly am of the opinion that a large foreign body will come close to the earth in the very near future although it will not strike the earth.  The CERN device could be used against such an object.  In short let us imagine a bank and the bank manager goes on holiday leaving the bank employees to usurp their position then the bank manager returns to take charge of the bank and the employees try to stop him.  This is a rather a light hearted analogy of the situation on planet earth at the present time.

There have over the recent years been so many aeroplane crashes and these are terribly tragic, the most recent was the German aeroplane, I wonder what message was being sent to the German government.

This is the time now to congratulate Fran on the creation of the facebook page.  I’m utterly delighted that so many have started sorting themselves into starseed families, but let us not forget that we are all equal and no one race is more superior than another.  Thank you Fran from all of us.

On another note I am looking to form a small dedicated group which will not meet on facebook, if anyone feels that they wish to take an ACTIVE roll in helping humanity then please email simonparkes7@gmail.com and in the subject line please title the email with ‘Group’, failure to follow this will result in the email being lost.  There are many people who I’ve met who have astounded me with their kindness compassion and truthfulness and their determination to do something positive for the benefit of others.  This group that I would like to establish will have that as its overriding goal.

Much strength, much hope, much love

It’s Time to Fix America’s Infrastructure. Here’s Where to Start


An aerial view of the Interstate 35W bridge that collapsed over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Aug. 3, 2007.

President Obama believes America must build “21st century infrastructure—modern ports, stronger bridges, faster trains and the fastest Internet,” and in his State of the Union this week he asked the Republican-controlled Congress to pass a bipartisan infrastructure plan, likely the trillion-dollar legislation Senator Bernie Sanders proposed earlier this month.It’s an ambitious plan that many agree is desperately needed.

The American Society of Civil Engineers says the US needs massive investments in all essential infrastructure, from bridges and airports to dams and railways. According to the society’s most recent infrastructure report card, the US earns a D+ for its infrastructure. It is, in a word, a mess. This is about much more than potholes. This is about keeping the economy, literally and figuratively, moving. Much of the economic boom the United States has experienced over the last 50 years is because the network of highways makes it easy to ship goods. If it continues into a state of disrepair, the long-term hit to our economy could be catastrophic.

“The grades in 2013 ranged from a high of B- for solid waste to a low of D- for inland waterways and levees,” the society wrote in the 2013 report, which is issued every four years. Things got a bit better, but not by much. “Solid waste, drinking water, wastewater, roads, and bridges all saw incremental improvements, and rail jumped from a C- to a C+. No categories saw a decline in grade this year.” Bringing it all up to current standards will be a massive, and massively expensive, undertaking akin to the construction of the interstate highway system. At the bottom line, the US would have to invest $3.6 trillion to bring it all up to snuff by 2020.

“Let’s set our sights higher than a single oil pipeline,” President Obama in the State of the Union, referring to the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline. “Let’s pass a bipartisan infrastructure plan that could create more than thirty times as many jobs per year, and make this country stronger for decades to come.”

There’s a lot of work to be done. Here’s an overview of the American infrastructure that needs to be fixed, and some good places to start the work.

Highway Funding

In 2007, taxpayers spent $146 billion on highways in the United States, with three-quarters of that coming from state and local governments and the rest from the feds. For major highway projects, federal funds are matched with state or local dollars, especially if the project benefits interstate travel. Much of highway investment comes from the Highway Trust Fund, funded by an 18.4 cent per gallon excise taxes on gasoline, and 24.4 cents per gallon on diesel. There are also revenues generated various taxes on trucks.

Unfortunately, highway fund revenues have been insufficient to fully fund existing highway spending, with Congress authorizing billions of dollars in transfers from the US Treasury’s General Fund into the Highway Trust Fund to keep it solvent, including a $10.8 billion transfer last August. It has ongoing funding needs that will continue unless a more permanent solution can be found, either by raising the national gas tax (which hasn’t been increased since 1993), or some other funding measure. The Congressional Budget Office expects the Highway Trust Fund to have an annual shortfall of $15 billion.

A number of solutions have been proposed including mileage-based fees on drivers, additional gas taxes, or simply pulling more money from the Treasury’s General Fund. And that’s just for highways.

Falling Down Bridges

One in 10 bridges are deemed structurally deficient, meaning the bridge has a significant defect that requires reduced weight or speed limits. (It does not necessarily mean the bridge is unsafe.) Another 14 percent of the nation’s 607,380 bridges are considered “functionally obsolete,” meaning they are no longer suited to their current task because of overuse or a lack of safety features, yet are still in use.

This is not an academic issue. Just last week, an overpass collapsed on I-75 in Cincinnati as it was being dismantled, killing a construction worker and gravely injuring a truck driver. It remains to be seen if the collapse was due to the age and condition of the span, or was an unfortunate demolition accident, but it underscores the risks we face. More well known was the collapse of the I-35 West Mississippi River Bridge in Minneapolis seven years ago. Thirteen people were killed and 145 injured. The bridge had been deemed structurally deficient in 1990, though the collapse was attributed to a design flaw that was exacerbated by an increase in bridge load over time.

“For many years we have underfunded the maintenance of our nation’s physical infrastructure,” Sen. Sanders wrote in an op-ed earlier this week. “I will soon be introducing legislation for a $1 trillion investment, over five years, to modernize our country’s physical infrastructure.”

Waterways

Inland waterways, including canals and rivers, move the equivalent of 51 million truckloads of goods every year—and half the locks are more than 50 years old. According to the ASCE, the problem is so bad that many barge operators have supported an increase in their fuel tax to increase funding to the Inland Waterways Trust Fund, the main user funding mechanism for construction and rehabilitation of inland waterways. So, what needs to be done?

The US Army Corps of Engineers, which maintains most of the system, says it will take $13 billion through 2020, with 27 percent of that going towards new lock and dam facilities and 73 percent toward improving existing facilities. Without an increase in funding, it could take the Army Corps until 2090 to finish everything on the to-do list.

The Olmstead Lock Project on the Ohio River, estimated at $3 billion, has been one of the biggest drains on the Inland Waterways Trust Fund. Originally authorized by Congress in 1988 for $775 million, the project isn’t expected to be completed until 2020. It’s the largest and most expensive inland water navigation installation in the country.

Before legislation introduced last year, the project absorbed almost all of the Trust Fund, though now Congress has separately appropriated funds to pay for the project, freeing up cash for other overdue projects.

Ports, Harbors, and Dams

Then there are the hundreds of commercial ports and harbors. But it’s not the cargo terminals that need upgrading—those have seen significant investment as shipments in standardized containers have risen over the past couple of decades. Instead, it’s the navigation channels that need upgrading, and taxpayers foot that bill. To handle the New Panamax ships—which, at 1,200 feet long and 161 feet wide, are the largest capable of navigating the new locks being built in the Panama Canal—navigation channels as deep as 45 feet will need to be dredged.

The ASCE cites the Port of Savannah, in Georgia—the fourth busiest in the country—as needing improvement, claiming that deepening its channels by just six feet will reduce the cost of shipping in and out of the port by 15 to 20 percent.

Our dams are equally in need of investment and upgrades. In 2012, nearly 14,000 dams were considered a high-hazard, where failure of the dam would likely cause the loss of life. They’re not necessarily unsafe, but if they were to fail, very bad things would result. Complicating matters, just 4 percent of the nation’s 84,000 dams are owned and operated by the federal government; the rest are managed by state governments, regional authorities or private entities like utility companies. These dams are overseen by state, rather than federal, safety programs, many of which lack sufficient funding. South Carolina, for example, has one full-time inspector and one half-time inspector to inspect the state’s 2,380 dams.

They’re also frightfully expensive to maintain. The US Army Corps of Engineers says it will take more than $25 billion to do all of the maintenance required at the 694 dams it manages, and without an infusion of cash it will take 50 years to complete the repairs. According to the Association of State Dam Safety officials, rehabilitation of all dams categorized as high-hazard would cost some $21 billion.

“For the U.S. economy to be the most competitive in the world, we need a first class infrastructure system” said the ASCE report. “We must commit today to make our vision of the future a reality—an American infrastructure system that is the source of our prosperity.”

Whether a Republican Congress and the Democratic President can actually get together and agree to do it is another question entirely.

Washington Menaces America With Its ISIS Creation


It just amazes me that the majority of Americans still do not get that they are being played by this screwed up government. I am going to ask a question, and I am not asking or looking for the damn answer, because I already know the answer. How is it that this latest threat to the so called American dream, some nonsense referred to as IsraeliSecretInsurgencyService just appears out of the blue, without the ballyhooed CriminallyInsaneAssociation knowing?

The simple short version…the spooks birthed the threat, just as they did with Al Qaeda back in the 90s, and the Afghan ‘freedom fighters before that. Hell Hollywood rubs that TRUTH in your face with a damn Tom Hanks movie. I wrote about what this nonsense is really about here…
http://netteandme.blogspot.com/2014/08/assad-and-syria-proverbial-egg-in-face.html

Tony asks questions about the planted stories about Americans leaving to fight along side ISIS, and then coming back to the homeland(am I the only one who hates that reference) and terrorizing us in his article below. I also seen a short video that played on these same ISIS fears at the Texas border I believe El Paso, that seemed contrived to me also and just more cheap propaganda. I don’t know, I am tired, here is Tony’s latest…

4535121The Washington Times in an article titled, “Intel believes 300 Americans fighting with Islamic State, posing threat to U.S.,” makes the incredible claim that:
The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials.
Officials say concern is widespread in Washington that radicalized foreign fighters could return to the homeland and commit terrorist attacks with skills acquired overseas, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the information. Those concerns were heightened by the disclosure Tuesday that a California man was killed fighting alongside militants with the group, also known as ISIS.
It is incredible because the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA) has not only been tapping and recording phone conversations of Americans for years, but also tracking phone locations as well. How is it that this massive, invasive, illegal, abhorrent surveillance control grid can be put in place, sold to the public as a necessity to “protect Americans” and “national security,” yet miss entire battalions of Americans signing up for and joining overseas, a terrorist organization like the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)? 
If the very scenarios the NSA uses to justify its abhorrent means have unfolded unimpeded, revealed only by “chance” with the passport of an American turning up in the pockets of dead terrorists upon an alleged battlefield in Syria, either the NSA’s existence serves another purpose, or the narrative we are being fed regarding the true nature of ISIS is a lie, or the most likely scenario – both.
Not the First Fit of Feigned Ignorance  
The very appearance of ISIS on the battlefields of Iraq and Syria allegedly took the US intelligence community by surprise. The unlikely narrative was designed entirely to maintain plausible deniability between ISIS mercenaries and their paymasters in Washington, London, Brussels, Riyadh, Doha, and Ankara respectively. In reality, headlines over the past 3-4 years such as, “C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition,” “First Syria rebels armed and trained by CIA ‘on way to battlefield’,” “Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With Aid From C.I.A.,” and “Official says CIA-funded weapons have begun to reach Syrian rebels; rebels deny receipt,” indicate precisely how and from where the immense, multinational ISIS mercenary force originated. 
The US has yet to account how its CIA could be operating within territory held by ISIS – including all along the Turkish-Syrian border and within Turkish territory itself – and neither know the existence, movements, or intentions of ISIS forces. 
Between NSA surveillance at home, and the CIA operating side-by-side with ISIS and other Al Qaeda-linked terrorist organizations, the sudden revelations that Americans are fighting within ISIS’ ranks seem to be more a matter of politically-motivated propaganda, timed perfectly to justify US military intervention in Syria, than a case of yet another convenient lapse in American intelligence. 
Washington Menacing America With Its Own Mercenaries  
Indeed, in order for the US to begin military operations in Syria under the guise of fighting ISIS forces, it must first demonstrate the threat ISIS poses to America. Already, likely false flags serving ISIS no benefit, but giving the US the green light to begin military operations in Syria have begun making their rounds across Western media. A CBS/Associated Press story titled, “Former Deputy CIA Director: ‘I Would Not Be Surprised’ If ISIS Member Shows Up To US Mall Tomorrow With AK-47,” claims:

“The short-term concern is the Americans that have gone to fight with ISIS and the west Europeans that have gone to fight with ISIS could be trained and directed by ISIS to come to the United States to conduct small-scale attacks,” Morell stated. “If an ISIS member showed up at a mall in the United States tomorrow with an AK-47 and killed a number of Americans, I would not be surprised.”

Morell warned that over the long-term the extremist group could be planning for a 9/11-style attack that killed thousands of Americans.

The same report would also claim:

The United States launched a new barrage of airstrikes Wednesday against the Islamic State extremist group that beheaded American journalist James Foley and that has seized a swath of territory across Iraq and Syria. President Barack Obama vowed relentless pursuit of the terrorists and the White House revealed that the U.S. had launched a secret rescue mission inside Syria earlier this summer that failed to rescue Foley and other Americans still being held hostage.

The current justification for ongoing preparations against Syria has been the Foley execution video, which experts have agreed upon was staged. The London Telegraph in its article, “Foley murder video ‘may have been staged’,” would state:
Analysts believe the British jihadi in the video may not have been James Foley’s killer, although it is accepted that the journalist was murdered.
Of course, if the video was staged, and every claim about it made by ISIS thus far proven a fabrication, no evidence at all suggests when and where, or even if Foley was murdered. If he was, no evidence suggests by whom. And despite this revelation, the US continues building momentum to intervene in Syria. 
Imperialism Hiding Behind Righteousness  
Several years and hundreds of millions of dollars later, ISIS is clearly the product of long-laid Western designs to overthrow the Syrian government and reorder the Middle East as warned by the prophetic 2007 9-page report titled, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefitting our enemies in the war on terrorism?,” written by Seymour Hersh and published in the New Yorker. In it Hersh warned about a cataclysmic sectarian war that would ravage the entire region, targeting not only Syria and neighboring Lebanon, but also Iran. He also warned that it was an intentionally engineered conspiracy between the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, with many smaller regional players serving in supporting roles. 
With the emergence of ISIS creating the very cataclysmic sectarian conflagration warned about in Hersh’s 2007 report, with no other credible explanation to account for ISIS’ incredible size, strength, and success beyond multinational state-sponsorship, Hersh’s reportage has once again been vindicated. 
It is clear that the US has created ISIS, and is to this day using it as both a means to target and attack its enemies across the Middle East, as well as serve as a pretext for direct US military intervention when proxy wars flounder. It is also being used in a third context – on the domestic front – as a manufactured and perpetual threat with which to further justify the militarization and centralization of America’s police forces and the continued expansion of the NSA’s invasive domestic spying. 
It is also clear that all of this adds up not to promoting freedom and democracy abroad while ensuring national security at home, but rather achieving full-spectrum domination in regions abroad and over the population at home. It is naked hegemony and imperialism playing dress-up in the wardrobe of righteousness.

Tell Obama “NO” Bombing Syria…WE’VE HAD ENOUGH!!


Dear Reader, Aloha!

In the wake of the terrible and sadistic beheadings of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, war hawks have ramped up pressure to commit to a long-term campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) — no matter how dim the prospects for long-term success.

After President Obama’s address to the nation, it’s clear that he’s caving to pressure to abandon caution and resort to military intervention no matter the cost or outcome. President Obama announced last night that the U.S. intends to lead what recent history has shown will be a costly and doomed effort to destroy ISIS by launching even more airstrikes in Iraq, putting more U.S. boots on the ground, and expanding U.S. intervention across the Iraq border into Syria.

When it comes to the current brutal conflict, rooted in centuries of religious hostilities in Iraq and Syria, there is no solution that American leadership can offer. It’s a total mess, and anyone who says otherwise is simply wrong.

The sad and simple truth is that the United States cannot lead any intervention without making a terrible situation even worse. And at this point in the conflict there is no viable campaign for peace and stability initiated by any other international or regional actor that the U.S. can join in support.

Tell President Obama: Don’t bomb Syria, or provide arms and training that may later be put to use advancing the repulsive agenda of ISIS.

At the heart of his proposal, the president proposed to take on ISIS with a U.S.-led mission to strike at Sunni extremists via an air war in Iraq and Syria, and by arming and training competing Syrian rebels who will simultaneously wage an insurgency against both ISIS and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

CREDO firmly believes that much of what the President has proposed requires Congressional review and approval. Having said that, Congressional approval, while procedurally appropriate, cannot transform bad policies into a good ones, and CREDO would urge a no vote on military intervention in Iraq and Syria as currently understood.

This announcement marks a dramatic shift for President Obama, who campaigned for president on winding down George Bush’s disastrous wars of choice overseas.

We don’t believe that President Obama is eager for a broader war, or believes the hawkish pundits and lawmakers who claim there is a simple solution to this messy conflict. Instead he’s been worn down by Congressional leaders in both parties, the military establishment and key members of the Obama administration including John Kerry and Joe Biden who are beating the drums for war.

But in actuality, there is no urgency driving an American response at this moment in history.

There is no immediate crisis as there was in August when CREDO supported the emergency U.S. air strikes that blocked the genocidal ISIS and helped protect minorities by holding the Kurdish defense line in Northern Iraq. Since then, the situation in Iraq has stabilized, and Iraq has formed a new government, replacing the corrupt and divisive former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The civil war in Syria is stuck in a bloody stalemate. The current media frenzy that has been ginned up largely by chickenhawks from the Bush administration and parroted by politicians from both parties is not an adequate justification for the United States to continue its intervention in either conflict.

Tell President Obama: Don’t bomb Syria, or provide arms and training that may later be put to use advancing the repulsive agenda of ISIS.

The president is pushing not only to bomb Syria but also to send arms to rebel factions in the civil war, even though doing so won’t fundamentally tip the balance in that religious sectarian conflict. Worse, any weapons we send to rebels in Syria could fall into the hands of ISIS, and any rebels trained by U.S. military forces, could take up arms with in the future as has happened in the past.

That ISIS is waging war with American military hardware that it captured from the Iraqi military neatly illustrates the iron law of unintended consequences that governs every American intervention in the region — and is a stark warning against sending arms to any faction in the Syrian civil war.

Given America’s history of waging wars of aggression and covert operations in the region, we are in no position to lead the way in resolving the current conflicts in Iraq and Syria. Regional players have the power to make a difference — especially Turkey, Iran,, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Iraq’s own government. But at this juncture a U.S.-led military intervention would harm, not help, their ability to broker a solution.

Tell President Obama: Don’t bomb Syria, send arms to Syria, or launch any additional airstrikes in Iraq.

It was just a year ago that the American people resoundingly rejected war with Syria. The only way to stop the march to war is to raise our voices again and make it clear to President Obama that his progressive base will not support war in Syria, or expanded conflict in Iraq.

We have to speak out now to prevent the United States from being dragged down the slippery slope to another unwinnable war in the Middle East.

Tell Obama “Don’t bomb Syria!”

Thank you for taking action.

The Urgent Issue of Captive Tigers


captive tiger behind fence© Sybille Klenzendorf

Keep tigers out of America’s backyards

Take action now h

Most people are surprised to learn that there are an estimated 5,000 captive tigers in America. That’s more than all wild tigers across Asia. Almost 95 percent are privately owned, often by people not trained to care for animals in general, let alone tigers. Alarmingly, there is no accurate record or system to determine the actual number of tigers in the country, where they are, or what happens to them after they die.

Wild tigers at risk

With no way to track captive tigers in the US, WWF and TRAFFIC are concerned that wildlife criminals could be pushing tiger parts and products into the international black market. This will only stimulate demand for tiger products, further threatening wild populations by putting them at increased risk of poaching.

An issue of public safety

Remember Zanesville? In 2011, local authorities in this Ohio town were forced to shoot more than 10 captive tigers and other exotic animals after their owner let them loose into the community. This is a scenario that could easily be repeated and with severe consequences.

Thousands of tigers are kept in backyards, urban apartments, and sideshows, often by those untrained in handling tigers. In some states, it is easier to buy a tiger than to adopt a dog from a local animal shelter and people can legally keep a tiger on their property without reporting it to local officials or neighbors.

Taking action

Together with TRAFFIC, WWF has raised the alarm on the lack of regulations on the private ownership of tigers in the US. We have called for a ban on private possession of big cats like tigers and lions. We are also asking that owners be required to register these animals.

Last year, President Obama announced a new Executive Order to Combat Wildlife Trafficking. To deliver that goal, we must commit to stricter management of captive tigers and other big cats that are targets of illegal trade. Better laws are an obvious place to start

Help us protect tigers

Secret Space War XIV: Tall White Nordics call Marduk’s Bluff ?


Note: Interesting article from Veterans Today, use discernment. From my observations the Draco alliance has lost much of the infrastructure it once had. Many key leaders have been removed, arrested or killed in battle and there’s a large contingency of benevolent forces protecting the solar system from further invasion. Right now it ‘s a matter of removing the remaining hold-outs, the ones who stand to lose the most and are behind the most heinous crimes against humanity will be the hardest to remove from power.
Which is only a matter of time….Namaste, Annette

aliens-nordicLast December, 2013, 91 world leaders attended Nelson Mandela’s so-called “Funeral”. Russian President Vladimir Putin was notably absent.(1)

 

At the time this seemed somewhat strange, since almost every other nation was represented by their top leader.

 

But also absent were the top leaders of China and Israel. This article will present what are perhaps the actual reasons for these peculiar absences.

 

It turns out Mandela died many months earlier than the date of his Funeral and it has been alleged by insiders that his so-called funeral was cover for the secret crowning ceremony of Marduk, the Alien ET leader, believed to be the head Draco.(2)

 

It is believed by some that Marduk was perhaps driven away from Planet Earth during earlier times by a major earth catastrophe or as a direct judgement of God Almighty. Others believe that another alien ET leader from the Tall White Nordics forced him to leave in some kind of major cosmic warfare victory.

 

It is very difficult to get a handle on Marduk, why he suddenly appeared in Africa, why he was crowned King of Africa and what he is trying to accomplish if these claims are true. Obviously the average person on the street is never supposed to find out about the Alien ET connection, Marduk and what he represents which is believed to be the Third Force.(3)

 

It is believed by some that the Dracos are shape shifting inter-dimensional lizard-beings, evil to the core and thrive on promoting human suffering, and mass painful deaths of humans.

 

alien-reptoids-reptiliansThus they have been labelled negative energy vampires that induce their servants, the IZCS to induce as much human suffering and mass painful death as possible to keep their energy status high.

 

Yes, I know this sounds ridiculous and impossible, but good and credible Intel sources from deep inside the American Space War System have provided this information so it is  not that easy to simply discount.

 

For example over two hundred very credible witnesses emerged under Dr. Steven Greer’s “Disclosure Project”.  These credible witnesses cannot easily be discounted and have provided major proof of a secret Space War and Alien ETs presence using Anti-Gravity Craft (AGCs).

 

The adjective “Draconian” actually represents the nature of Marduk and his human followers who are the twelve luciferian bloodlines and all their close relatives dating back to ancient Babylonia.

It is believed that Vlad the Impaler was a Draco-human hybrid, noted for being soulless and someone who cherished creating as much terror as possible by making many of his victims suffer incredibly without dying for several days.

Some claim Dracos have established an iron grip on the world through its Cutouts, the private central zio Banksters who use Babylonian Money-Magick to establish “beach-heads” in every major nation-state. It has also been hypothesized that the IZCS are the zio Banksters direct associates and also have their subsidiary espionage fronts of World Zionists (WZs) such as AIPAC, B’nai B’rith, ADL, SPLC and the like.

If this is true it means that these tools of the Dracos which include the the private Central zio Banksters, IZCS, and the WZs espionage fronts in America, have been doing the direct will of these evil Dracos to create as much human suffering and painful human death as possible to feed their negative energy needs.

Those of the Draco’s Reps (Cutouts) who create the most human suffering and painful death, receive the greatest earthly rewards and are propelled up the Draco’s food chain to the highest levels of the governments they own and control (which is most of them).

It has been alleged that nearly every single member of Congress and the current Administration are under the power or “spell” of the Draco system and are basically owned by their Cutouts the IZCS, the WZ’s and their espionage fronts. the means by which this has occurred has been the so far successful deployment of sophisticated Psi-powered and Psychotronically powered MINDWAR against the American Citizen.

 

This has also been described as the technological applications of high tech luciferian “temple of set, or Reich of the Black Sun zionist technologies which have alleged to have been provided from the Dark-Side by the Dracos to their human leaders who have resided at the top of the NSA and the US Military, specifically formerly at the Presidio and Offhutt AFB. Omaha has traditionally been the capital of this US Military Pedophilia and mind-kontrol operations by this groups of criminally insane sickos and pedophiles (and still is). These individuals are known satanists and pedophiles and have used national security as a false cloak to prevent their wide-spread exposure and prosecution which would probably be death for their massive Treason and frequent pedophile crimes and murder/sacrifice of children.

 

The very top “Circle of Twelve” human leaders who run the IZCS are believed to be Draco-human hybrids with no souls and an addiction to the generation of mass human suffering and painful deaths as well as power, wealth from war and drug profits, pedophilia, human sex trafficking, and illegal organ theft and trafficking.(4)

 

It is also believed that those who sell out to lucifer, the apparent Wizard of OZ behind the Dracos often get their own “spirit guide” which appears to them periodically, especially after episodes of human sacrifice or imposition of great human suffering and painful death. These spirit guides are claimed to provide business Intel and other kinds of Psi-power help, but can be blocked by those wit strong character, a strong commitment to the “Golden Rule” of “Do Unto Others….” and various classical spiritual principles which are based on this basic human precept of morality.

 

It is also believed that the current administration is owned by the Bush crime Cabal as have all since President Reagan who is believed to have been the last duly elected president.(5)

 

Yes, it is believed that the Dracos have attained ownership of most governments of the world, but not all. Insiders claim that ever since Lee Wanta negotiated “win/win” end to the “Evil Empire” (Soviet Russia) as President Reagan’s Secret Agent under the Totten Doctrine, Russia has gone a notably different direction.(6)

 

_71652766_russia_putin_g

This Russian Statesman is so far unmatched in his ability to play on the international geopolitical chessboard.

 

Apparently President Putin did not attend the Mandela Funeral and did not pay homage to Marduk as the new king of Africa because he refuses to submit to the Draco system which would produce nothing but more suffering and painful death for his Russian Citizens. He appears to have become informed that Marduk and his Dracos are the Third Force and are attempting to take over the whole world, only this time they will turn on those that served them in the greatest betrayal in history, one that will make the “Night of the Longknives” look like child’s play.

 

And even though it is now known that the OSS Kingpins set up Maoist China as another Draco nation, it appears as if the new Chinese leaders want nothing to do with Marduk or his Dracos or any of his strategies to produce as much human suffering and painful death as possible.

 

Apparently someone or some entity has tipped off both the Chinese as well as the Russian Leaders that Marduk is going to pull the greatest betrayal in history and they are distancing themselves fast. What is the source of their knowledge on this?  More on that later after the third nation to refuse to attend Mandela’s funeral is discussed.

 

It is known that Israel’s top leader refused to attend the Mandela Funeral or pay homage to Marduk when he was crowned king of Africa. This seems strangely out of character since more than a few insiders believe that Israeli zionists have been the core of the Draco’s system on Planet Earth and have been the controllers of the IZCS, the WZ’s and all their espionage fronts in America and have done so on behalf of the City of London private Central zionist Banksters.

 

Yes, the British Prime Minister was there, but no leader of Israel. Hmm. What is the reason for Israel’s absence? The best possible explanation so far is that the Israeli leadership now realize that they are being thrown under the bus, that world zionism is now in its death throes and the Draco’s are done with them and going to thrown them to the wolves. They now realize that Marduk plans to level Jerusalem, gut Israel and bring a new unity to the Middle East for all including Palestinians, and rebuild the Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem for himself as perhaps the “Final Anti-Christ”.

 

3d230d44This is greatly alarming to Israel’s zionist leaders who are now going for broke by having their American espionage fronts exert as much pressure of the US Congress and the Administration as possible to go ahead and attacks Syria, Iran and now the Ukraine.

 

Zionist Israeli leaders believe that unless they Balkanize Syria, Iran and now the Ukraine and get their natural gas and oil pipeline built while cutting off Russia’s sales and exports of the same to Europe, they are essentially finished.

 

Basically Israel is now pretty screwed because of their domination by world Zionists (WZs) who were in bed with Dracos for many years and served as Draco Central’s main Cutouts.  Note, the City of London Financial District is believed to the world capital of the Draco’s who are the originators and promoters of World Zionisms, the IZCS and the private Central zionist Banksters.

 

Yes, payback is a bitch and appears to be headed straight for the IZCS, the WZs, the zio Central Banksters and Israel. See the main thing to note about the Dracos is when you are no longer needed, you get “axed”.

 

Some very good Secret Space War sources have suggested that perhaps President Putin has made a secret treaty with Tall White Nordic Alien ETs who are allegedly the arch enemies of the Dracos.(7) Not only do they hate what the Dracos stand for but view them as parasites on all humans that must be eradicated or driven away like they were before. Apparently the Tall White Nordics have claimed that there are “Cosmic Rules of Play” that when followed can assure the defeat of the Draco’s and their whole system that has seduced and enslaved the world by placing numerous Babylonian spell on humans societies.

 

Allegedly the number one “Cosmic Rule of Play” is that the Dracos can only capture the human minds and hearts if humans consent by responding to various temptations and spells. If they refuse, their character is strengthened.  If they consent and give in to these temptations to violate the Golden Rule “Do Unto Others As You Wish Them To Do Unto You” their character is weakened. If they persist in more violations, eventually their character becomes so weak that their very souls can be snatched, allowing evil desires to replace that soul.

 

Apparently Putin has been fully briefed by the Tall White Nordics about Marduk’s evil plans to mass murder most humans while maximizing human suffering. He has allegedly consulted with the Orthodox Russian Church and formed an alliance to break this evil Draco hold on Russia.

 

Conclusion:

 

If information provided by current or former members of the American Secret Space War System have been accurate, it appears that President Putin has decided to stand fast against the evil Draco system that hijacked most of the world including the UK, Israel, France, Germany, NATO, and America. This is a very bold move and suggests that perhaps President Putin has some new backing from a very powerful Alien ET force, the Tall White Nordics who are also believed to be in contact with a new upcoming group deep inside the American Military and and Intel.

 

It is also believed that there is a very deep split within the Secret Shadow Government (SSG). The “Circle of Twelve” bloodthirsty “Denver Group” that currently controls the  IZCS, the WZs and their Cutouts (AIPAC, DHS and its TSA, B’nai B’brith, the ADL and the SPLC and the like), and even the American zionist Federal Reserve Bank has been basically untouchable until fully exposed by prominent federal Whistle-blower Stew Webb. It is now being chipped away at from all sides and is in notable decline.  It’s main Cutout the Bush Crime Cabal is losing power fast and is in deep decline and has been splitting from zio control lately for some unknown reason. Some believe that this notable decline in the SSG, the Circle of Twelve, and the Bush Crime Cabal is largely due to a new secret alliance with this new up and coming group on American Military and Intel and the Tall White Nordics like President Putin has entered into.

 

It is also believed that Chinese leaders have entered into a new alliance with a certain Alien ET group which has an underwater base on the floor of the Pacific Ocean somewhere off the California Coast.  It is not yet been leaked which particular group this is but so far it appears that it apparently has nothing to do with Marduk or the Dracos.(8)

 

Only time will tell where this is all going, but it appears that a major world conflict is brewing between those nation-states controlled by the Dracos and their zionist Cutouts and those nation-states no longer under their evil grip. It is difficult to get a good handle on all this due to the extreme compartmenting and so-called national security aspects. About the best we can do for now is speculate using the various leaks from inside the Secret Space War System that have occurred.(9) I would certainly like it if none of the claims about Alien ETs were true, however there is a large body on overwhelming evidence from very reliable, credible retired Military and Intel sources which suggests otherwise.

 

One thing is for certain.  All State-based Secrecy including Crytographics is ending and the process is well underway, thanks to the advent of inter-dimensional/multi-dimensional new zero-point or near zero point quantum computers. All physics texts will have to be completely rewritten because they are currently wrong, very wrong about many things.

 

And if the University and college Systems are to survive at all, every bit of their deep zio/Draconian censorship and suppression of the real truth about the world’s hidden history will have to be openly disclosed and discussed in the open.  No more situations like the illegal and extreme abuse of Dr. Kevin Barrett just because of his beliefs that he never taught in the classroom. All this censorship and suppression of real truth in the Universities will stop as all state secrets are exposed.

 

Then perhaps you will see real discussions about the true state of politics, history and economies determined by Babylonian Money-Magick instead of all the cover stories and blatant lies and mind-kontrol and obtuse cultural programming of the naive, suggestible students.

Keystone XL: Not in our interest.


The State Department has just begun a public comment period on the “National Interest Determination” phase of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline project. They are accepting comments for 30 days only. We need to make our voices heard as loudly as possible that Keystone XL is most definitely NOT in our national interest.

Secretary Kerry and President Obama have for a long time spoken about the dangers of climate change and the imperitive to act. Despite the oily State Department process that led to the final environmental review, the report made it clear that Keystone XL does not fit in any climate-safe scenario. The only question that remains is, will they live up to their own words by rejecting this pipeline once and for all?

R E P O R T Subject: Update 22hrs German-Time Regarding G8 Meeting and Obama-Merkel Meeting

 

Dear Sir:

 

We have received several pieces of information listed here below regarding the release:

 

  1. Our sources in the Pentagon have been advised that SWISSINDO needs to apply the strongest pressure possible for an immediate release. There have been more than sufficient time given to the German Central Bank and Commerzbank to execute your instructions and to no avail. Right now, we do not know whether Commerzbank already received the re-confirmed Payment Instructions through UNO channel or not (as written in your last email); if not, the suggestion is that you please re-issue the Mandate Letter with effective date for execution by the Federal Reserve (according with US Laws, the FED can force a transaction) within the next twenty four hours without any further delay allowed; this could be executed in close cooperation with the Pentagon.
  2. The front image to the public given during the Group of Eight G8 meetting was that a coordinated effort by the industrial economies to prevent Tax Evasion worldwide but we have been informed the private discussions were as to how best to execute the Monetary Emission and solve the issues as the German Chancellor could not provide any further excuses to justify delay in releasing the funds.
  3. We have been informed that the FED Chairman was pushed out on the pressure exerted by the Pentagon against the White House. The basic players and their interactions are described here below:

 

Here is the person who handles all in the shadow of the planet in recent years, this former great servant of the American State has for many years his knowledge and influence to research the political and financial power, with spent most of his career in the Secret Service, with “official” stints as Secretary of State, Adviser, Ambassador, etc.., found its mark around the assassination of Patrice Lumumba in the Congo, the Coup of 1974 in Portugal, etc. ..

 

After his position as National Security Advisor under Ronald Reagan, he became head of the Carlyle Group, which specializes in weapons trafficking, various activities of money laundering operations “covert” for the CIA, etc.. and finally large financial-monetary transactions; Carlyle even became for many years the “Fund of Funds”, handling the financial market (Singapore, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, etc..) by investment funds (Hedge Funds, Pension Funds, etc.) in the economy and control most of the “Financial Programs”. was also present at the “Board of Trustees” of the Rand Corporation (CIA bis) and “Chairman Emeritus” of the US-Taiwan Business Council (it was he who “invented” YCT-Yeh Che Tsai), he created many years the myth of the “Chinese fortunes,” and the massive use of fake Bank Guarantees / criminal from HSBC, Barclays , UBS, Standard Chartered Bank, etc.. And these “guarantees” were obviously assembled from figures annual interest of “Reserves Accounts” criminal network that aside to be shared between the various links of influence and power sharing “Committee of 300″, IMF , Bilderberg, etc..

 

This is of course: Frank Carlucci, who sponsored the appointment of Dominique Strauss-Khan, and Christine Lagarde, the IMF, in order to organize the looting of countries in economic difficulties (African Countries, Greece, Portugal, Spain, etc.). the link was very evident as one of the leaders of Carlyle is Mr Olivier Sarkozy, brother of Nicolas Sarkozy (French ex-President), the latter had received formal instruction to block the work of the OMD, as they had identified that the OMD was supported by the Division 10 and SWISSINDO System.

 

It is obvious that Carlucci controlled until the last few days several members of the U.S. government, the CIA, the Pentagon itself (for weapons, officials and secret contracts).

 

This is Frank Carlucci who had appointed Ben Bernanke to head the Federal Reserve, as Robert Zoellick at the World Bank’s role has always been to develop and manipulate the people responsible for “infiltrate” the major institutions.

 

The execution of large commercial programs entrusted to his accomplice William Chase McQuade (attachment), head of the global number one “commodities” trader by the criminal manipulation of prices, which impoverishes commodities producing countries.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Carlucci

 

The recent action of the Pentagon helped bring down Ben Bernanke and several members of his network is Bernanke on instructions Carlucci, blocking the Federal Reserve in carrying out the operation “Commerzbank”. It is inconceivable that Commerzbank does not execute a payment order from the Fed, because the Fed can legally “force” the transfer from one account to another, from the U.S. dollar, legal currency of the USA Indeed, if it not done, it is because Blessing knew he was “protected” by Bernanke and Angela Merkel, herself taking orders from various financial relay Carlucci, we find here the links already identified:

 

  • Carlucci – Carlyle Group
  • Carlucci – Taiwan
  • Carlucci – Rand Corporation
  • Carlucci – CIA
  • Carlucci – IMF
  • Carlucci – World Bank
  • Carlucci – Edge Funds
  • Carlucci – Pension Fund
  • Carlucci – Goldman Sachs
  • Carlucci – Bernanke
  • Carlucci – Obama
  • Goldman Sachs – Mrs Blessing
  • Mrs. Blessing – Martin Blessing
  • Martin Blessing – Angela Merkel
  • Angela Merkel – Nicolas Sarkozy
  • Angela Merkel – Barrack Obama
  • Carlucci – Commerzbank
  • Carlyle – Olivier Sarkozy
  • Olivier Sarkozy – Nicolas Sarkozy
  • Nicolas Sarkozy – Dominique Strauss-Khan
  • Nicolas Sarkozy – Christine Lagarde
  • Nicolas Sarkozy – Olivier Griffon

 

It is necessary to examine the behavior of President Obama, who apparently tried to prevent the Commerzbank 1-11 payments operation and our analysis is that he had not understood the meaning of the operation, as it was “intoxicated” by Ben Bernanke, who made him believe that the release of funds was dangerous without strict “money laundering” controls, which is obviously ridiculous given the activities Carlucci is known to handle, but it convinced Merkel and Obama to oppose the actions instructed by SWISSINDO; Bernanke Obama even threatened to resign in case of release of funds…

 

Incidentally, it allowed F. Carlucci and W. Chase McQuade continue to collect monstrous profits by speculation, taking advantage of the lack of liquidity in the financial market. This is the real reason he had control inside the IMF, to seize the assets of indebted countries, of course, Carlucci also buys cheap (50-52%) Medium Term Notes (MTN) from his base in the Netherlands, to finance the deficit, of course through the Funds that he controls …

 

The latest information (from: Mr. Noyer, Governor of the Bank of France and Chairman of the Directors of the BIS), dated Wednesday, 06/19/2013 – 15:00, the Federal Reserve announced in specialized financial circuits that release of funds must occur as soon as Mrs. Merkel has agreed (?). Mr. Obama is having lunch today with Ms. Merkel to explain the new guidelines.

 

We have just been informed (22h00 – German Time) that Mrs Merkel has declared not to be involved within the Commerzbank transaction; this could mean she has been told by President Obama to authorize the transaction ?

 

Separately, we send you a copy of the Status of OMD, dated December 02nd, 2008; you can read (Page 2 – Chapter 1 “Definitions”) that we had planned the creation within OMD of two Divisions: FHSG (Forum of Head of States and Governments) & COPERRE (Committee of Permanent Representatives); these two entities were supposed to initiate the concept of “Monetary Council”, to receive the requests of the Beneficiaries and to allocate them their quota.

 

When Mrs. Angela Merkel asks for “parity” participation in the monetary decision-making regarding quota allocations, to protect “democracy”, she has just to read what we have written…

 

Dear Sir, please advise us regarding your instructions issued to the Monetary Authorities.

Holder, Carney Under Attack as Scandal-Gate Widens


by May 14, 2013 3:46 PM EDT

As tough questions come in, the White House finds itself at a loss for easy answers,        writes John Avlon.

For journalists, privacy concerns and the Patriot Act just got personal. In two brutal press conferences Tuesday afternoon, the Obama administration caught both barrels from a newly aggressive press corps.

Confronting a hailstorm of questions on the Justice Department’s secret subpoena of AP phone records and the IRS targeting conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, Attorney General Eric Holder and White House press secretary Jay Carney struggled to stay on message, clinging for dear life to phrases like “unfettered,” “inappropriate” and “striking a balance.”

With the significant exception of Attorney General Holder – at a scheduled press conference on Medicaid fraud – announcing that the FBI and Justice were investigating the IRS, the presidential piñatas had little new information to deliver on the expanding front of scandals enveloping the Obama administration. (Word went out just before Holder’s presser that he had recused himself from the national security leak probe that led to the Department of Justice obtaining the phone records of Associated Press journalists since FBI agents had already questioned him about the leak – which led to a press conference where the head of Justice couldn’t answer simple questions about what Justice had done.

Perhaps most notable as the president’s men dodged questions was the rare unified field of criticisms from news organizations on the left and the right. The phantom of Benghazi was largely set aside in favor of substantive questions on the more serious scandals involving the Justice Department and the IRS. Oddly, the AG chose to echo President Obama’s repeated description of the tax-exempt status scandal – “outrageous.” In addition to the tough crowd inside the briefing room, the Twitterverse exploded in a combination of bipartisan mockery and rubbernecking at the scene of a car-crash.

The administration seemed tied up in knots on its insistence that President Obama still supports the media-shield legislation he touted as a senator and candidate but did not aggressively back once in the White House – insisting on a national-security exception that effectively gutted it, and left it to die in the senate. Earnest attempts at spin aside, the facts lead directly to accusations of a flip-flop. As Jay Jarvis put it on Twitter, “Carney says Obama believes in balancing “unfettered” investigative journalism w/natl security. Doesn’t sound unfettered then.

Carney is right to insist on balance. Absolutists on either side miss the practical realities of governing. And it is no badge of honor that the press corps seems more attuned to objections about the excesses of the Patriot Act when it affects them.

But amid trite narratives about the second-term curse and misapplied Nixon metaphors (offered up primarily by Republicans), there is now a circling consistent with the sense that blood is in the water. Getting out front of these scandals with unspun facts that offer perspective (as CNN’s scoop of an email from National Security senior staffer Ben Rhodes on Benghazi that contradicts conspiracy theorists provides) will be critical to navigating this new territory.

The press corps has turned on the White House in large part because they feel betrayed by the secret AP records search. Trust has been broken and the traditional adversarial relationship has been reasserted. A rough road lies ahead.

“Significant challenges lie ahead,” said Holder. He was referring to Medicaid fraud, but he might as well have been speaking about himself.

Obama’s “Last Supper”?


Monday, March 11, 2013


By Michael D. Shoesmith

Antichrist Obama will be entering Jerusalem on a day which marks one of the most famous events in human history, March 20th, or Nisan the 9th according to the Hebrew calendar. It was on this day that Jesus made his “triumphal entry” into Jerusalem riding a donkey. It is also noteworthy that Antichrist Obama will be riding a donkey too… the Democrat Party.

March 20th is also the Persian New Year coincidentally.

Remarkably Antichrist Obama may have orchestrated his own personal “last Supper” – a meeting on the 14th of March with 12 Republican senators.

The guest list included Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Dan Coats of Indiana, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, John Hoeven of North Dakota and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia.

Go ahead, count the names. Twelve. The same number of people who ate supper with Jesus… his “last supper”.

The following day is the “Ides of March.” The Ides of March is best known as the date on which Julius Caesar was assassinated.

Note: Well, isn’t that interesting…Obama’s taking some of the most corrupted Republican’s of the GOP along to the Temple Mount for the “Last Supper”. How symbolic…so, who represents Judas? McCain?

And where are the Democrats? Why are they all staying behind? Very interesting indeed…

Tens of Thousands Rally to Stop Keystone XL Pipeline & Urge Obama to Move “Forward on Climate”



Democracy Now
February 18, 2013  |  

The following is a transcript of a Democracy Now! segment on the massive protests against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Tens of thousands of people gathered on Washington’s National Mall, Sunday, to urge President Obama to reject the controversial Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Organizers of the Forward on Climate event described it as the largest climate rally in history. Protesters displayed a mock pipeline with the motto “Separate oil and separate oil and state.” The proposed 1700 mile pipeline would deliver tar sands oil from Canada to refineries in Texas. The Reverend Lennox Yearwood compared the rally to Martin Luther King’s 1963 march on Washington for civil-rights. The protest was organized by 350.org, the Sierra Club and the hip hop caucus among others. Speakers included President Obama’s former green jobs adviser Van Jones.

VAN JONES: Well, this is it. This is the last minute in the last quarter of the biggest most important game humanity has ever played. This is it. One thing I know having worked in this town, the simple maxim, if you don’t fight for what you want, you deserve what you get. If you don’t fight for what you want, you deserve what you get. I had the honor of working for this president, and I want to direct my message to him. President Obama, all the good that you have done, all the good you can imagine doing will be wiped out, wiped out by floods, by fires, by superstorms if you fail to act now to deal with this crisis that is a gun pointed at the head of the future. Everything you have done. History will judge you 20 years from now based on one decision alone. That decision is not in the hands of the congress. That decision is not in the hands of any governors. That decision is not in the hands of any mayors or any dogcatchers. The decision is in your hands, Mr. President, your hands. Your hands. The decision to let this pipeline come through America is a most fateful decision you’ll ever make, Mr. President. It would be like jabbing a dirty needle into this country from Canada. It would be like lighting a fuse on a carbon bomb. That is what it would be like doing, Mr. President. And you cannot allow that to happen. If the pipeline goes through, Mr. President, the first thing it runs over will not be farmland. The first thing it runs over will not be small towns. If you let this pipeline go through, Mr. President, the first thing it runs over is the credibility of the President of the United States of America. That is the first thing it runs over.

AMY GOODMAN: President Obama’s former green jobs czar Van Jones. Canadian indigenous leader Chief Jacqueline Thomas of the Saik’uz First Nation traveled from British Columbia to attend Sunday’s rally.

CHEIF JACQUELINE THOMAS: I am a mother of four and a grandmother of one, and I was raised by my own grandmother. She was a traditional medicine woman of my people. I learned early on the value of our environment. She was known as Dr. Sophie Thomas and her words are still with me today. And what she told us was when we take care of the land, the land would take care of us. [Cheers] if we destroy this land, we will destroy ourselves. I am speaking on behalf of the Yinka Dene Alliance from northern British Columbia. And Yinka Dene translates to ‘people of the earth’. I am part of the Dene people from the northern reaches of the Northwest Territories, down to my cousins, the Navajo of Arizona. We formed an alliance to stop the Enbridge Northern Gateway project which plans to bring tar sands oil to the coast of British Columbia, which will then be put on tankers to go to the Asian markets.

The Yinka Dene Alliance is opposed to irresponsible, environmental damaging projects that puts our communities, our water, our culture, our land, our fish, our animals, and most importantly, our plants, at risk. It puts at risk my neighbors to the east of me that live at the tar sands. The government doesn’t recognize these people, and these people have been dying of mysterious cancers. Their water is polluted. Their animals are sick. Mother Earth is sick. Enbridge really has brought our communities together in Canada because we have had oil spills, and you also have had a oil spills in this country, because oil will spell. It is just a matter of when. They’ve spilled in the Kalamazoo, which I hear cannot be cleaned up. They’ve broken their promises and I understand it’s even Enbridge that it did that. They’ve spelled oil in Red Deer Alberta. They’ve spilled oil in my sister, the territories of the Lubicon Cree. They’ve spilled oil in the Northwest Territories, the Dene brothers and sisters that I know from the Northwest Territories. And, of course, who can forget Exxon Valdez? Of course, also, in most recent memory we’ve had the BP spill, which was on the news day after day, month after month. They have hurt the brothers and sisters of the Houma Nation that my sister has visited. Never in my life have I ever seen white and native work together until now [Cheers]. Thank you, Enbridge, for doing this work for me.

AMY GOODMAN: Canadian indigenous leader Chief Jacqueline Thomas of the Saik’uz First Nation, one of the main organizers of Sunday’s Forward on Climate rally was environmentalist and writer, Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org.

BILL MCKIBBEN: All that I ever wanted to see, all that I ever wanted to see was a movement of people to stop climate change, and now I have seen it! [Cheers] You guys, you guys look so beautiful. I have been meeting people all day. It’s hometown heroes like our friends atSEAC and it’s heroes like those people who have been blocking Keystone with their bodies down in Texas. It’s people who understand that the fight against fracking and against coal ports and against taking the tops of mountains is ultimately the fight for a living plant. [Cheers] It is people who lived through Sandy and people who survived the drought, some of whom I got to go to jail with last week. [Cheers] It is the students at 256 colleges who are now fighting the fossil fuel industry head on to force divestment, the biggest student movement in decades. [Cheers] It is all of you. Your the antibodies kicking in as the plant tries to fight its fever. [Cheers] We have waited a long time to get started. We’ve already seen the Arctic melt. Our colleagues in 191 countries at 350.org tell us every day about some new drought, some new flood. Because we’ve waited this long, the easiest answers are no longer enough. We’re going have to start making tough decisions.

Our theme has to be when you are in a hole, stop digging. [Cheers] Above all, above all stop the Keystone pipeline. [Cheers] the president can do that with a single stroke of his pen. And if he does, he will become the first world leader to veto a big project because it is bad for the climate. [Cheers] That would be a legacy and a signal to the rest of the world. And so we will keep making our case. We’ll follow him and the secretary of the state around the country. And as this spring goes on we will unite that fight with a focus on all the other holes we’re still digging too. And as summer comes on, this movement will just pick up. I want everybody to circle those days toward the end of July that are on average are the hottest each year. We’re going to try and make them hot politically, too, this year.

AMY GOODMAN: Bill McKibben of 350.org. The Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly who starred as the character Kate Austin in the show Lost also spoke at Sunday’s climate rally.

EVANGELINE LILLY: I an shamed of what my country is doing. I am ashamed that we’re knocking on your door with dirty oil. I want to stand up here a Canadian and say, I want to say I’m sorry to the workers in Canada and the workers in America who have to go home and look at their kids in the eye and know their damaging their future. I want to say, yes to jobs that allow Americans and Canadians to go home and let their kids in the the eye and say, I am fighting for you. I’m working for you.

AMY GOODMAN: Casey Camp, a member of the Ponca Nation of Oklahoma, also attended Sunday’s Forward on Climate rally. She said oil development is the latest challenge facing her native American nation.

CASEY CAMP: Now we’re suffering environmental genocide as a result of ConocoPhillips refinery being on our land, as well as many pipelines underneath us. And now Keystone and Keystone XL are disrupting our lives as well as the lives of our relatives up in the northern country. And we’re here to make a difference. We’re here to be in solidarity with all of us who understand that we have a very slim opportunity to make human life continue to exist. That’s our choice.

AMY GOODMAN: Casey Camp, a member of the Ponca Nation of Oklahoma. And if you want to go to our website, we have an in-depth page on the Keystone XL pipeline at democracynow.org. When we come back, Harry Belafonte wins the highest honor of the NAACP and gives a major address in Los Angeles and New York. He is introduced by a man who could be the next senator of New Jersey, Mayor Cory Booker.

Obama gets BLASTED BY RADS 01.07.2013


Note: I left this comment under this video…

Does anyone else think that picture of Obama in the water looks photoshopped…it looks like the head was placed on the body of a lighter skinned person and the face doesn’t look wet. I’m a swimmer and that doesn’t look like the expression one would have doing the freestroke. It wouldn’t surprise me if he NEVER got into the ocean, that they most likely photoshopped his head onto someone elses body.

Published on Jan 7, 2013

The Obama family vacation appears to have been cut short, coinciding with 3x Hazmat level radiation readings in Hawaii…MSM running year-old photo of Obama swimming, provided by the WH…and besides a hike to a waterfall and ‘possible’ beach excursion by his kids, the Obama’s appeared to have spent most of their Hawaian vacation indoors. Who the hell goes to Hawaii and doesn’t swim in the ocean? People who know whats blowing and floating in from Fukushima, that’s who…I know this entire video is based on speculation but at some point you need to decide if you truly believe in coincidence.

Vacation dates according to Reuters (if correct Obama & family left Hawaii 4 days early) Article states: “Before leaving Washington on Friday evening (the 21st), Obama urged Congress to come up with a stopgap measure to spare the U.S. economy the jolt of $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts economists say would likely derail the economy”: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/22/us-usa-obama-idUSBRE8BL0DT20121222

The Sum Of Its Parts


September 8, 2012

Planet Waves

By Judith Gayle | Political Waves

Many an individual has turned from the mean, personal, acquisitive point of view to one that sees society as a whole and works for its benefit. If there has been such a change in one person, there can be the same change in many.

–Mahatma Gandhi

I slept restlessly on Thursday night as welcome but dangerous thunder storms moved through the Pea Patch. Each time I opened my eyes to peek at the clock, I heard the same phrase echo in my mind: Si, su pueda. Yes, we can — words that have no doubt struck terror into the hearts of countless Republicans yet again, and for damned good reason.

Political Blog, News, Information, Astrological Perspective.

Shortly after Obama’s acceptance speech, I caught Karl Rove on FOX News holding up a white-board of hastily scribbled talking points and assuring the faithful that he couldn’t understand how ANYone could buy all the lies and misrepresentations of the ‘Democrat’ party, but even a casual observer could sense his anxiety, see the veins popping out on his forehead. He was working harder than a one-legged man in a tap-dancing contest.

It was not my intention to write a Dem bookend to last week’s Pub convention piece, but so much for that. Early in the week, I decided that most of you who were interested in an actual American future would be looking in on what the left had to say, given the gravitas of this election. I suspected, pre-convention, that I would enjoy it, simply because I am happily engaged when someone ‘speaks my language,’ and I’ve never watched a Dem convention that didn’t ring a few populist bells to keep the natives dancing. Reviewing the roster of speakers, I knew I would be moved, inspired and encouraged, and assumed that if you watched, dear reader, the experience of what is traditionally part propaganda, part pep rally would be self-defining. I lifted my eyes to heaven in hope that Obama would give us a glimpse of his progressivism rather than his pragmatism, turned my TV to C-SPAN and cleared the decks for three nights of political dialogue.

What I didn’t figure on was the collective emotional tug of liberal aspiration. We don’t hear it much, these days, but it used to be part of our self-definition as citizens. Not to put too fine a point on it, I heard the language of “we” again, inspiring stories of those who dream and accomplish not just for themselves, but for everyone else as well. I didn’t make it through the first night dry-eyed, and wept my way through the next two. Did the Pubs get that same emotional zap, hearing those who argued for more prosperity and the end of evil free-loaders who want to raid their piggy banks? Does the language of “me, me, me” move its listeners to tears of yearning and empathy, or does it encourage them to take up the blood-sport of eliminating those impeding their progress?

 

I wish I knew. I don’t want to widen the breach between the parties with idle speculation and create more divide between me and my neighbor, but I can’t get a sense of their innermost emotion, overlaid as it is by that dark blanket of fear and paranoia, of perceived victimization orchestrated and nurtured by their party leaders. And just as this election could not draw clearer lines about the philosophies that will lead us into the future, there couldn’t have been more difference between these two conventions.

Oh, both political conventions were slick enough, infotainment wedded to stagecraft. This is the traditional tribute to public governance and democratic underpinnings, held every four years to prove that we, the people, are still in charge of our own republic. Many of us know how diluted that influence has become, how stilted the notion that our votes count or that they will even be accurately tallied in a system no longer accountable to provide the iconic “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness” we value so much. There is every indication that the very plutocracy we now recognize all around us controls all but the most minute details of our lives, perhaps even them; that we’re becoming a more authoritarian state by the day, our police more brutal, our liberties eroded, our opportunity stifled. We have immense challenges that seem unsolvable — but we have to start somewhere, assessing where we are by stopping to look at where our feet are planted.

That first step, that “somewhere,” occurs at these conventions, where we get a sense of our options and the intention of our leaders. This year, much like the last dramatic cultural divide we faced in the 1960′s, our choices are stark. It’s not much of a stretch to select a side, and we’ve been told that the votes up for grabs are miniscule, which is not good news in a race so tight. But the Pub convention did not move the needle. It fell flat, even among its own. Reports that Eastwood’s talk with the vacant chair was the highpoint of the multi-million dollar Pub spectacle are remarkable, given Romney’s supposed track record at rescuing troubled events from obscurity. There seems little or nothing this man or his minions can do to make him likeable, with no bounce from his selection of stalking horse, “lyin’ Ryan,” or new converts to his business-friendly policy.

We don’t know if Obama will get bounce from his event, but he put a bit of it in my step for a day or two. What happened in Charlotte this week was like an all-star game of my favorite sport. Day after day, speakers followed one after another with their little piece of the political puzzle, and it became clear early on how different this convention was from any we’d seen before, not just this year, but ever. This was the most full-throated progressive “do” I remember, with GLTB people wrapped in rainbow flags, women proudly proclaiming choice, Muslim Dems and Sikhs waving placards, large numbers of Latinos supporting the ticket, including young Dreamers who fall under the Presidents’ recent umbrella of tolerance. Outshining even the traditional tapestry of political conventions, this was the brightest, most dazzling collection of diverse colors, shapes and interests I’ve seen collected in one room since Obama’s inauguration.

On C-SPAN, without commercials, speakers flowed into one another much like a slide show. I was treated to moving moments like the one in which a young woman praised Obamacare for the life-saving treatment of her little girl, tightly holding her hand on stage while her husband stood by with a toddler in his arms, and the delighted face of a beaming Gabrielle Giffords, haltingly led on stage by her friend and colleague, Debbi Wasserman-Schultz, to lead the convention in an enthusiastic Pledge Of Allegiance. The applause was deafening.

Different aspects of progressive consciousness were addressed: by a ‘Nun On The Bus‘ assuring us we ARE our brother’s/sister’s keeper, gently demanding a compassionate budget; by the lovely young woman that Rush Limbaugh called a slut assuring us that the Dems are the only party respectful of women’s rights, and the only hindrance to the Republican obsession with a return to a regressive past; by the Cuban-American journalist known as the Spanish ‘Oprah,’ urging her millions of viewers to renew the Dem mantra, “Yes, we can!” We were treated to Massachusetts Governor, Deval Patrick, thundering down at us from the podium to “get a spine” and walk the progressive walk. We stood when Elizabeth Warren assured us that we must change a game that is rigged against us, and that corporations — despite Romeny’s claim — are NOT people.

Still, these four long years of two-steps-forward, one-back had taken a toll on us all. It never seemed far from mind that all that had been painstakingly achieved could be rolled back in the blink of an eye. When Obama told a reporter that his “grade” for his first term had to be an “incomplete,” the Pubs shouted with glee and ran with it. Poor guy just couldn’t do it, they said, couldn’t make the grade, couldn’t plug the leak or fix the plumbing. A failed president, they said.

But others said it was THEIR fault Obama failed to press forward, shamefully overusing filibuster and then using the agenda-setting power of the House to block all forward motion. Chris Matthews said it best this time, and in something of a loud televised snit, bless him: “For them to criticize the Democrats after leaving this country in hell, and then to come back and to claim it isn’t heaven, is insane.” Well, yes, but then again, nobody has accused the Republicans of rock-solid sanity for over a decade now.

It was the job of this convention to affirm what had been accomplished in the last four years and make the case for its continuance. Because Obama was the “decider,” as it were, the Pubs had managed to weaken his brand, his ability to make good decisions suspect by even some in the middle. So, while the Pub convention was an exercise in amnesia, never mentioning the little Bush that took us to the cliff, Obama’s convention became an exercise in defending the last four years and, given the spin-factor, turning it into a plus.

On the first day, Michelle spoke for her husband’s heart and populist instincts. On the next night, Big Dog Bill Clinton spoke reassuringly of his policies and political savvy, pushing back Pub obfuscation on several points they had gained traction misrepresenting. On the night of the nomination, Joe spoke for Obama’s character and his political courage. All three speeches were touted as barn burners. By the time Barack was called upon to make his speech, most everything had been said and his speech was declared only adequate; on the other hand, an Obama “adequate” is equal to several “astoundings” from other speakers. He made his case.

I’m glad I watched the convention and I’m glad I decided to write about it. We can’t afford avoidance and discouragement. I’m glad I allowed my thoughts to be led along the path of populism, my eyes to shed tears of inclusion, empathy and compassion, my heart to blast cynicism away with an opening to collaboration, tolerance and acceptance. I’m pleased that I allowed myself to be touched by the delightful flavors of diversity and youth, a signature completely missing from the Republican convention floor. We haven’t taken time to celebrate so much change in these last years! To even note it! We’ve already ‘moved past’ so many of the things that seem ‘new’ this year but resonate as old in our soul — like loving whom we will, like lifting one another up, like expecting fairness and decent wages not as some reward for our performance but because of our mutual human experience, like bending in service to “the least of these” because it’s the RIGHT thing, if not the easiest. Change has brought us far — have we noticed?

If the last years have given us anything, it’s a sure sense of stagecraft, of theatrical anticipation. Nothing that happened at the Democratic Convention was a surprise, except perhaps the earthquake that opened Wednesday’s schedule, when a voice vote was called to approve an addition to the Democratic platform. There was just a skeleton crew in the hall, a handful of delegates filtering in as Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa proposed the addition of a specific reference to “God” and “Jerusalem as the capital of Israel” to the political platform. He took a voice vote for the addition, and then repeated it. The first two votes were loudly in favor of REJECTING the proposal. Calling for a third, with only slightly less difference in volume, he called for inclusion — and the camera panned to voters looking at one another and shaking their heads.

I don’t believe this was a rejection of the word God. It was a rejection of Zionism in no uncertain terms. Obama had called for the revised language, no doubt hoping to avoid ill feeling from AIPAC or bullshit from Romney’s camp on the eve of a difficult election. Villaraigosa was caught between a rock and a hard spot. It was not a pretty moment, but it was telling. Watching it with my son, I mentioned that we’d seen the quake, the tsunami would follow, and it will. As Gawd is their trump card to all things “secular” and “liberal,” we will hear of this again — we unwashed, baby-killing hippies, Gawdless miscreants on the left. This progressive sentiment to be fair arbiters of a Palestine/Israeli peace process was a stumble in the right direction, but a stumble, still, and the only surprise. At least nobody talked to a chair.

Obama didn’t tell us a lot about what he wanted to do with the next four years, except complete the projects started in the first four. He DID however, speak to climate change: the first mention in the entirety of this campaign. Let me recommend a read by old yippie activist Tom Hayden that speaks in reasonable tones about Obama’s political realities. There are some hints there about what to expect, how we can advocate for a more progressive outcome. Remember, as well, that as Obama himself indicated in his speech, WE are the change, WE are the hope. As such, WE are the future and we will decide all this together, much as we do each day, here at Political Waves and in other websites asking for mind and heart to work in tandem for our own person experience as well as our common good. They are always the same, those two; good to remember, in case there’s ever a question.

If you’re a liberal and you watched the Dem convention, then you probably got a little battery recharge. Where we want to go in this nation is not alien to Obama, who too often chooses the Establishment’s way forward. It’s not airy-fairy dreams that we conjure together, our desires represent actual political realities that can only be established if we come together to MAKE them happen. Obama knows this reality, and in his heart of hearts I think he approves it, but when pushing ahead is a hard slog only to move the ball inches, watching it sail over the goal posts seems very far away. Making a better world happen will take heart and courage.

Each of us is beginning to close in on the truth: our own. We’ll vote that truth in November as a matter of consciousness. Some are voting for Romney because their pastor told them to, or because the other guy is black. Neither of those reasons really has much to do with us. Some are voting for the incumbent because the possibility of handing over the shrinking middle-class and the struggling lower-class to a man with no appreciation for our respective realities seems unthinkable and in so doing, at least behaving with some caution in a dangerous time. Some are just biding time until the whole world explodes in chaotic need of food, water, sustainable resources and — if you will forgive the candor — that’s not only foolhardy, it’s selfish. None of these actions show authenticity. None of these lead us to passionate action.

Heart and courage are why we came here to this planet. It’s why we step up to be the one lending a hand, the one feeling what others refuse to feel, the one speaking for those with no voice. It takes considerable courage to live the advice our hearts give us because we are the few, listening to that quiet voice. We do not behave in character with others around us, who don’t understand why the callous maneuvering of the greedy and mean-spirited affects us so profoundly. They are as yet unable to put themselves in another’s shoes, empathize with the plight of others, and that is what the two conventions showed: the choice between living in a world where the takers win, or the inclusive world we want to make for all the citizens of the world.

Here’s your take-away. We are so evenly divided, in this nation, and every day someone surprises us by changing their mind. So many of us see the real danger of our inhumanity to one another, now. Take comfort that exposing the darkness hastens the Light!

Everything we see, everything we do these days is refining and redirecting energy, bit by bit, that adds up to more than the sum of its parts. We serve the whole by our willingness to take on these small, difficult feelings and challenges. Who knows? One random feeling, accepted, understood, experienced and released may be the last small piece that breaks the back of a cabal of dark workers half-way across the world, suddenly aware that their selfishness is a form of suicide. Each kindness extended, each exhaled disappointment followed by a deep breath of renewed intention changes our own world, and that of everyone around us. Each little sliver of Light that we usher into this plane changes every possibility for good.

Gandhi tells us that if one person can change, so can others. The theory of the Hundredth Monkey tells us that when that last pivotal individual changes, everyone else will too. What if just one change of mind today — provoked by one extended kindness or one act of forgiveness, one hand extended or criticism swallowed — was that very last thing we were all awaiting? What if our one little piece was the last before the Shift?

What if you woke up one morning and heard the voice that whispered, “Si, su pueda”? Yes, we can. Would you put aside your discouragement and disappointment in the slow, difficult politics of this century? Could you bring your best to the hour, the day, the week? Then let me be that voice, encouraging you past your weariness and despair. For what is better, kinder, more functional and compassionate to each of us on this lovely planet — for what is infinitely larger than the sum of its parts — remember: Yes! We can!
